Traditional Photo Booth Rental in NYC

Traditional Photo Booth Rental in NYC

We recently set-up our classic vintage photo booth in NYC at the Standard High Line for a lovely Sweet 16.  One of the hippest hotels in Manhattan, the Standard High Line offers fantastic views of the Hudson River.  The hotel sits adjacent to The High Line, NYC’s only elevated park and by far, one of Manhattan’s most popular New York attractions.

The High Line NYC

The High Line was formally a rail track, which went out of use in 1980. The 1.45-mile-long strip was resurrected in 2009 and turned into one of the best NYC Parks, which runs from Hudson Yards to the northern edge of Chelsea.  Read more about the High Line here at Time Out New York.

At the Party

Our classic vintage photo booth in NYC fit perfectly with the decor at the Standard Hotel, matching the vintage New York theme.  Guests were in and out of our vintage photo booth all evening!  Great event space and perfect decor for our vintage classic photo booth!

Classic Photo Booth Rental Hoboken

Classic Photo Booth Rental Hoboken

We recently set-up our Classic Photo Booth in Hoboken, NJ for a winter event.  Had the opportunity to connect with my friends at All Who Wander Event Design, for a recent event in their beautiful space in Hoboken, NJ.  I met Nicole from All Who Wander Event Design at a wedding we worked on together at The 1896 Studios.  The 1896 Studio is a unique, edgy rental space in Brooklyn, New York.  We had the opportunity to work together on producing an intimate, vintage-style wedding with our classic photo booth, and decided to get together again to celebrate the end of the year!

Making Connections

At the party, I also had the opportunity to connect with friends at Dovetail Vintage Rentals, providing vintage & boutique rentals for weddings and other special events.  Enjoyed connecting with all these great vendors in the wedding industry and recommend them as excellent resources to anyone looking to plan an event!  Plus, they were all fans of our classic, vintage photo booth at the party!

Classic Photo Booth

One thing I asked each of these wedding professionals: what do you think makes our photo booth appealing?  For some, it was the quality of the photo.  Others, the simple design.  Lastly, the appeal of an enclosed photo booth as opposed to an open air booth.  Straight from wedding professionals themselves. Our Classic Photo Booth is still a hit for weddings and events.

VW Photo Bus Rental Montauk NY

One thing I enjoy most when attending events with Bella, our VW Photo Booth Bus, is the opportunity to chat with fellow Volkswagen lovers.  Guests regularly share memories of owning a VW Micro Bus and all the stories with it.  I recently attended a wedding at the beautiful Montauk Yacht Club (http://www.montaukyachtclub.com/).  On this crisp, Autumn evening, I spoke with multiple wedding guests about their memories of camping, family trips, memorable childhood experiences, all in their families VW Bus.  It was amazing to hear all the different stories associated with this simple vehicle.

VW Bus as the Ultimate Adventure Van

I recently read this article about the VW Bus as the ultimate adventure van.  For some, the VW Bus captures a spirit of freedom.  Others, adventure.  And others, simplicity and joy.  The VW Bus itself is versatile, yet simple.  Even today, people are searching high and low to purchase and restore one of these vans.

Making new memories at the Wedding

At the wedding, guests simply loved jumping into Bella and posing for their photo booth photos.  I also heard numerous comments about seeing a working VW Bus still on the road.  These sorts of conversations happen regularly at events.  It’s wonderful to see how stepping into the Volkswagen and posing for photo booth photos brings back such memories. It’s fortunate that we can capture those smiles in the back seat.  Of course, the bride and groom at this particular event, was already having a wonderful evening dancing, mingling, and joining their friends in our VW Photo Booth Bus.  Guests loved packing into the back seat two take photo booth photos as well.  The beautiful views in Montauk, a picturesque Autumn evening, and the fun atmosphere made this one of the most memorable Fall weddings we’ve done in years.

Volkswagen Photo Bus Rental in Southampton, NY

Bella, our vintage Volkswagen Photo Bus, recently attended a private wedding on Long Island.  We showed up, parked her right in the front of the house during the ceremony, and waited for the bride and groom to complete their vows.  See photo below.

Antique Car Lovers and our Volkswagen Bus

Turns out, the guest list included tons of old antique car lovers who spent most of the evening chit chatting with me about their next restoration project.  They loved looking inside the restored engine of our VW Bus, admiring the traditional German engineering, and finally, taking some photos in the bus!  I spoke with one couple from North Carolina currently in the market for a VW Camper Bus to find and restore for their family camping trips.  We shared notes on the different challenges of finding a VW Bus and I directed them to a few helpful resources.  Another opportunity to build a meaningful connection and encourage people to follow their dreams!

Photo Booth Fun

The bride and groom were thrilled to see our Volkswagen Photo Bus drive into the backyard as soon as they completed their ceremony.  They had no idea we were coming for their wedding reception (a gift from one of their close friends) and we spent the rest of the evening taking photos in and with Bella.  A lovely evening with our classic VW Bus on Long Island!

Vintage Photo Booth in East Hampton

Posted 9/12/16 in: New Jersey New York

Vintage Photo Booth in East Hampton

Our vintage photo booth made it out to a classic East Hampton Wedding on Long Island this summer.  Guests from ten different countries joined in the festivities.  At the end of the night, guests filled the photo book with love notes in French, Chinese, German, and Spanish.  Not only did these guests have a wonderful time, but they all loved spending time taking photos.

Intimate Gathering at Gansett Green Manor.

Held at the lovely Gansett Green Manor (http://gansettgreenmanor.com/), this intimate Hamptons venue is ideal for a private summer wedding.  With two acres of carefully manicured grounds, this quaint bed and breakfast is nestled in the heart of East Hampton.

Customizing our Vintage Photo Booth

For this particular wedding, we customized the outside poster of our classic photo booth to fit the theme of the wedding.  One benefit of the minimalist design is our ability to customize our photo booth for various wedding themes.  At another event earlier this year, we customized a special curtain for our photo booth.  We love being part of wedding events like this – great guests, beautiful grounds, and our vintage photo booth there to capture all the memories!

VW Photo Bus Rental Hamptons NY

We recently drove our VW Photo Bus Rental to a private party in the Hamptons, NY.  One of the best parts of restored our Volkswagen Micro Bus: driving right into the backyard of the event.  With the sun setting and guests coming back from the beach, we arrived just on time and set-up in the back corner of a lovely Hamptons home.

Guests loving the photo booth

Guests could not wait to learn more about the history of Bella, how she drives, and how to take a photo. They loved even more the idea of jumping inside the vintage Volkwagen Bus and posing for photos. Of the many guests, I remember one guest in particular who commented on how he fondly remembered his family’s VW Bus and the many long road trips they used to take.  He ended up loving the photo booth idea and posed for ten different photos with his family.  We love hearing stories of fellow VW lovers and capturing them posing in our vintage photo booth!

Photo Booth Rental Chelsea Piers NYC

Photo Booth Rental Chelsea Piers NY

Last weekend, we brought our photo booth rental to Chelsea Piers NYC for a lovely wedding.  Overlooking a beautiful view of the Hudson River, The Lighthouse in Chelsea Piers is an ideal venue for a classic New York wedding reception.  The Lighthouse is also one of several exclusive venues catered by Abigail Kirsh, one of New York’s premier caterers.  Excellent food at premier wedding venues throughout the Tri-State area.

Classic Photo Booth – Enclosed versus Open Air

At this particular event, I spoke with a wedding planner from New York City specializing in high-end events.  We discussed the differences between the popular Open Air Photo Booths and my more traditional, enclosed photo booth.  While she mainly partners with Open Air Photo Booths, she did mention that she loved the overall experience of enclosed classic photo booth.  There is something different about squeezing into the booth, drawing the curtain, and posing for photos.  One other important comment she made: the quality of the photo is what really set us apart from other companies.  See below.

Request a Sample Photo Strip

Whenever we receive an inquiry from a potential client, we recommend requesting a sample photo strip from all photo booth companies being considered.  The quality of the photo strip is critical, especially for weddings.  While we understand there are many factors to consider in selecting the appropriate photo booth for your wedding, we always recommend getting a sample first.  This will narrow down your choices and ultimately, help you find the right photo booth for your event.

Our Classic Photo Booth Rental at the Ritz-Carlton NYC

We loved being part of this elegant wedding with our classic photo booth rental at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in NYC.  Guests got a chance to reconnect and strike a pose in our classic photo booth for an throwback New York Wedding.

Destination Wedding in New York City

Bringing old friends together for photos is one of our favorite things to see.  Guests came in from all parts of the country to celebrate. This lovely Manhattan couple met in college and they maintained close relationships with all their close friends over the years. Their wedding doubled as a college reunion!

Iconic Manhattan Hotels

What better place to have a college reunion than a weekend wedding reception at an iconic Manhattan hotel!  I overheard several guests comment that they loved the old-fashion, classic photo booth.  With so many different photo booth options out there, it’s difficult to choose.  At this event, guests seemed content with our straightforward offering.  We offer a  minimalist design and excellent quality photo strips.  Two of the basic ingredients to an excellent photo booth.  While we recognize the many different offerings out there, for couples looking for an old New York wedding at an iconic Manhattan Hotel, our classic booth was an absolute hit!
